Silver Bullet Bullion - kind of neat but not easy to stack!

tincuptincup Posts: 4,722 ✭✭✭✭✭
Ran across this link for what looks to be a different form of .999 bullion to be offered. These are being offered by Northwest Territorial Mint and are in the form of ammunition, and are made of .999 silver; some look like they have a nice presentation box included. Should have some nice crossover interest; I would think these might be good sellers at a gun show. (or maybe for vampire hunters). Kind of like the 50 caliber myself, might get one just for something different. Hmmm... maybe have to get an ammunition belt to store them?

    I'm surprised that no one pointed out that these resemble cartridges rather than bullets which are a component of cartridges. Now, silver bullets would be very popular with reloaders that are having a problem with werewolf infestations. image

    None of my calibers, and if I could find the real thing, I'd learn reloading just for the coolness factor of having some live silver bullets.

    Anybody interested in parterning up? I'd like a box of 10- 1oz pieces like the ones pictured above.

    Maybe a few of us who've worked together in the past can pool up some funds? They're quite a bit cheaper if you purchase 50 or more...

  • You could stack'em easy in a magazine or drum. image

    idk... I think they are kinda cool.

    I'm going to get a few45s. I didn't see the box for sale but I'm sure it was somewhere.
    Selling later maybe interesting.
    Guess I don't live near or know anybody to combine with.

    Could just get a few and put them in a clip.

    Thanks for posting.

    I wonder how these are manufactured. Photos look like they may be machined; I do not see any ridges, etc. that would indicate being stamped in a press. Although perhaps they are first stamped and then processed to remove the lines, etc.

    Nice, but doubt they would be very negotiable if cashing out.... but cool to have one - maybe I will get the .45 - Cheers, RickO

    I clicked on this thread expecting something else. I read bullion as button and if you live in California this is a "bullet button."

    It prevents finger manipulation of a magazine release on rifle thus, in verbatim compliance with California law, turns an "assault weapon" back into a semi-automatic rifle.
    Yes, it's ludicrous and the only thing stupider is the legislators who tried to write a law. Anyway, installed it looks likes this on an AR

    On an AK it looks like this;

    I went to the trouble of posting the pictures because now I have a great idea. A "California bullet button" made of precious metals. I see a great need .....

    Is it ok to travel with this or do you think customs will not even allow you to take these even though they can't be fired?

    I hadn't thought about that.... but I would be very leery taking these through an airport, etc. Might get them taken away from you and you might be detained while they try to figure out what they really are....

    Amazing what some are willing to pay for a novelty item, then haggle about the price of an old pour bar.
    This is not directed at the person this quote came from, just a general observation.

    You can buy 2013 ASE's for $1 less buying the same quantity or have to wait up to 8 weeks to take delivery. NWTM is backlogged 8 weeks on certain items.
    you can even buy apmex bars for considerably less

    Don't know where you're getting your info.?

    Wouldn't loading them into clips scratch them up?

    Who wants APMEX bars when you can pull a box of these bad boys out and show them off.

    You can have your crusty old silver bar you want $50 oz for (general non-specific observation).

    Cool!

  • bronco2078bronco2078 Posts: 9,961 ✭✭✭✭✭


    There has to be a manufacturing cost on stuff like this on the other hand a poured bar seems like the simplest thing to make for anyone with the ability to refine silver.

    I love it when I can get in somones mind so much that they feel they have to reply to everything I say just to appear to disagree, when it's on record that they feel the total opposite as they are trying to portray just because they want to argure with me when the obviuosly correct route is what I said. Thank you for making my day, you know who you are arseclown.

    True PerryHall, good advice.

    I'll leave those who think this silver is cool and this thread with this, because they probably think this is cool too. Nice example to set for their kids.

    It looks like barstock, turned on a lathe, and then finished and the ends stamped

    Thats what I was thinking, the original bar is machined through a multi step process . Simpler than making actual ammunition but still more complex than any bar or round. I don't think its an outrageous premium over the cost of silver. It sells at 5$ over spot per unit or at a lower cost if you buy a lot to resell.

    Theres not much point in buying lots because you put yourself into competition with the manufacturer if you are going to resell them.


    I think they are neat looking but I like my silver at spot image


    If spot doubles the premium should disappear. If spot goes down maybe it the premium stays the same or even increases a little?
